Strainers provide economical protection for costly pumps, meters, valves, and other similar mechanical equipment by straining foreign matter from the connected piping system. Installation of a strainer before mechanical equipment can ensure trouble free service and avoid costly shutdowns for repair or replacement of equipment that can be damaged by foreign matter. The size of the perforation or mesh in the basket screen will determine the smallest particles captured. See Strainer Information section in the Mueller Steam Specialty Engineering binder for detailed information including sizes and materials available.
